Eurasian capercaillie, wood grouse, heather cock Tetrao urogallus
The Capercaillie lek camera is situated in Lääne-Virumaa, Estonia.
It is a remotely operated camera that can be panned, tilted and zoomed by an operator.
Male capercaillies are not on the lekking site for 24 hours a day, but arrive at sunset. The arrival is accompanied by the loud rattling sound of the wings. In the morning, the capercaillies display begins already in the dark – 2-3 hours before sunrise – and lasts until mid-morning. Afterwards, the males leave to rest and feed in the neighbouring areas.
